Picton Harbour at Mouth of Marsh Creek

Picton Harbour on Lake Ontario

Picton, Ontario, Canada

Calm sheltered harbour in Picton where boats are docked and easily accessible from the boardwalk beside the Harbour Inn. The Marsh Creek empties into the bay here from under the roadway. Tests done at the end of the nearest dock on north end of boardwalk. Water fountain in the water nearby not close enough to influence our tests.

No rain in past 24 hours and only 4 MM in past few weeks. Sunny and very calm now. Some Canada Geese along the shore. Some small bubbles coming up from under the surface once in a while but no fish or other animals around. Water is cloudy and weedy and green algae prominent.

Sunny and mild winds today after fog burned off a few hours ago. 14 MM rainfall in past 24 hours. Lake levels obviously higher than normal as the parking lot beyond docks are partially water filled and entire dock area is weighted down with full barrels to keep them from raising too high to be useful for boaters and pedestrians. Water very murky so could only see half the way to bottom. Took sample home to do phosphate test as temp was not between 15 & 20 C
